International Mobility / Work Experience Projects



photo1

Lancaster & Morecambe College have been running European work experience projects for over a decade and were one of the first colleges in the UK to receive the Leonardo Certificate in Quality for Mobility. (Mobility in this context basically means a period of training, learning or work abroad). This was in recognition for our commitment to offering high quality European work placements and developing a strategic approach to embedding this activity across the curriculum.

We are now over half way through the Erasmus+ programme and continue to seek new opportunities for our staff and students; these include Engineering and Construction placements in Denmark, Hospitality, Tourism & Business placements in Italy, Animal Care shadowing in Poland and Sports Leadership & Coaching placements in the Netherlands, Bulgaria and Slovakia to add to our existing placements portfolio.

In 2016/17 we embarked on the STEM2: Structured Training and European Mobility2 mobility project with some new international offers and extended this with a new project called OWLe: Opportunities to Work and Learn in Europe in 2018.

OWLe2: Opportunities to Work and Learn in Europe2 is now under way and we are preparing a whole new cohort of deserving students to represent themselves, the college and their country until 2020.

LMC are celebrating almost two decades of participation in international projects and we invite participant photos, videos and stories demonstrating mobility experiences abroad.

We want to share the possibilities of working and studying abroad for future students so please contact the International Team for more information.
